Strategies for Managing School Violence among Students with Disabilities.
Threats to teachers and students and acts of violence cause disruption in the normal functions of a typical school day by obstructing the learning process. Security in schools is a major concern. In the last few years, new research and procedures have expanded the issues of school violence. Studies have been conducted on the relationship between violent behavior and the exposure of normal progress of students with disabilities to certain factors at home, school, and the community. Educators must learn to cope with many factors that impact school violence such as fighting; violent behavior; weapons; harassment; vandalism; theft; and assault. This document discusses ways in which educators can deal with these factors. Courses such as positive decision-making and conflict resolution are now being fused into the curriculum. New school policies are being revised to restructure discipline procedures. Prevention programs are continuously being adapted for those with and without disabilities. (Contains 27 references.) (JDM)
